Uncle Buck's Deluxe Round Crappie Reel
i bought this reel a while back and love it for fishing over brushpiles or whatever else the baitclicker helps me dectect small strikes and i have caught my biggest crappie on it.

This product isn't what I'd hoped for
I bought this little reel to be able to cast small things like roostertails and small crappie jigs but, as it turns out one of the gears broke in it the first day i took it to the water. I switched it to the other gear (bait clicker gear) and fished with that. Even in the first place the thing couldn't cast more than maybe 10 feet with a good sized bobber with a hook and weight. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone to buy because it's just a waist of your time and money. Put 10 to 15 more dollars toward something much nicer for the same size that will last much, much longer.

Don't buy this reel!
Bought this reel this past spring to put on my jig pole. Worked fine for a while but then I kept getting my 8 lb line between the spool and the reel casing along the inside of the reel. At first, I could just pull it out, but then it got so bad that the handle wouldn't turn at all there was so much line around the shaft. So took the little screws off on the side opposite the handle and the inside spring comes jumping out at me. Got it back together but now there is no free spool and no stop. Less than a year and I'm going to have to replace this reel. Uncle buck's tackle is usually a great value, but skip this one and spend a little more. I wish I had.

Level Wind Ice Fishing Reel
Part of the description is incorrect. This is not a good reel for casting because there is not a free spool release button. However I love it for ice fishing. The three positions include clicker off, clicker on and clicker on with anti-reverse. With a moderate weight I can allow my bait to go to the bottom and then put the clicker on and use it for dead-sticking. I will probably also try the reel for perch fishing from my boat when I want to drop it straight down, but forget it for casting.
